1953 Royal Quiet De Luxe #AG-2606457


Purchased at an antique place in Shellsburg, IA on 11/6/16 for $10.00

This was purely a pity rescue... the poor thing was sitting outside and had gotten rained on. The case is a total loss, but I think if I take it apart, give it a bath in rust remover and a new paint job, it should be all right. Maybe.

Typeface Specimen:

Hunter: Jessica Winkowski (radioactivealchemist)

Status: Typewriter Hunter

I've been collecting typewriters since 2010 and currently have 100+ machines in my possession. While I have my personal collection, I also clean up typewriters for sale and would like to learn to repair and restore them, too.
